Ebola: Fact, fiction, and stories from the field

Speaker: Dr. Jeff Deal, Director of Health Studies, Water Missions International


This talk will consider Ebola from the standpoint of a US healthcare professional and MD involved in infection control and who has worked inside two Ebola Treatment Units. Against the backdrop of the disease’s history and future projections, he discusses the ways that Ebola is altering Liberian society, destroying their economy, and destabilizing their government. Within this context, he will address how Water Missions International is responding with severely needed water treatment systems to aid in the combat against this disease.
